Is it possible to combine sport mode and dsc off with the 2012/2013 models? Did they change something here? With mine there is no way to combine dsc completely off with "sports" or "sports +" steering/suspension/throttle response/DCT automatic mode.
Little known facts about BMW: 1) The N54 is still in production and used in the current Z4 35i and 35is. 2) In a Z4 you can get sport+ steering combined with normal suspension etc by selecting DSC=off. (Update: DSC=off also offers sports steering in the M135i) 3) All Z4s with 19" wheels are still only offered with the worst performing OEM tires ever sold with a DCT equipped BMW (Potenza RE 050 RFT).
